Fax your MP.

This service doesn’t work - many of the MPs don’t have fax numbers.

However, as part of the UK gorverment’s digital parliament, all of them have email addresses - which none of them check, or answer.

Great idea. Poor application.

Except Tony Blair, perhaps?

If you bother to look at the stats, Martin, you’ll see that there’s only about a dozen MPs who don’t receive faxes. Out of 600+, that’s pretty good. If you’re that keen you can always post them a letter.

It worked for me, and I got a reply from my MP pretty soon after.

Great idea. Great application.

I sent my MP a fax and he didn’t have one. I sent him an email, and he hasn’t replied.

So much for stats.

Either something works, or it doesn’t - they should have information on the front page to say who recieves faxes and who doesn’t - when I tried it about a year ago, there were no such stats and I went through the whole process, only to find out that I had wasted my time.
